Rag Radio 2011-06-24 / Environmental Activist Diane Wilson, Author of 'Eco-Outlaw'


Published June 24, 2011


Environmental activist Diane Wilson, a fourth-generation shrimper from Seadrift, Texas -- and a mother of five -- has earned the wrath of industrial polluters everywhere. She has been arrested 50 times and has participated in disruptions of U.S. Senate hearings and corporate shareholder gatherings in Houston, Taipei, and London. Wilson was Mother Jones magazine's "Hell-Raiser of the Month," and was one of Grist's "13 Badass Greens." She was a founder of CodePink, the Texas Jail Project, and Injured Workers United. Diane Wilson is the author of Diary of an Eco-Outlaw: An Unreasonable Woman Breaks the Law for Mother Earth, and An Unreasonable Woman: The True Story of Shrimpers, Politicos, Polluters, and the Fight for Seadrift, Texas. She was featured in the award-winning PBS documentary, Texas Gold, and received a Dobie Paisano Writing Fellowship for 2010.
